Top 10 Fireworks Displays in Kerala

When we talk about Kerala, a land renowned for its lush landscapes, tranquil backwaters, and diverse cultural traditions, we cannot overlook the significant role that fireworks play in its many festivities. For centuries, fireworks have been a cornerstone of Keralan celebrations, illuminating the night skies and symbolizing joy, prosperity, and divine blessings. Their origins are closely intertwined with Kerala's rich tapestry of religious and cultural festivals, predominantly associated with Hindu temples.
The Top Ten
1 Nemmara-Vallanghy Vela

Traditional methods are used for these fireworks.

This is beyond imagination. No words to explain its size and amount.

One of the best childhood experiences.

2 Kavassery Pooram

Biggest fireworks in Kerala. Total of seven sets.

It is the biggest noon firework.

In fact, Kavassery is the place where most firecrackers are burst.

3 Thrissur Pooram

Two teams spend around 3 crore for the fireworks each year. In this venue, the typical style of Kerala fireworks was born, so it can be called the mother of all Kerala style fireworks. It was the biggest fireworks display in Kerala in previous years, but later Thrissur became the fourth-largest city in the state.

Nowadays, the Thrissur Pooram fireworks are comparatively lower due to security reasons when we consider other locations like Nemmara and Kavussery. However, due to the venue's specialty, it still remains the best fireworks display with the best sound effects compared to any other locations. It is also the best location to access, with better transportation, all types of hotels (from 5-star to normal lodges), better views (you can watch from the ground or sit back in good seats arranged in the buildings), and all modern facilities like shopping malls, theaters, internet cafes, etc.

Above all, Thrissur Pooram is the best, most expensive, and biggest cultural festival in the state itself.

4 Anthimahakalan Kavu Vela

Part of our cultural heritage, this event must be preserved. Adequate safety measures need to be taken while organizing the event.

If the total is as good as the firecrackers of the Ten Commandments, then the firecrackers will be the ultimate bullet.

Great fireworks and a unique occasion for social gathering and entertainment for common people.

5 Uthralikavu Pooram

One of the best fireworks in Kerala, owing to the extra reverberation by the surrounding mountains. Classic use of local talents, which emphasizes sound and sparkle over fancy colors. Umbrella fireworks after the actual fireworks can be seen only in Thrissur Pooram after here.

6 Parakkottukavu Thalappoli

Fireworks and echo caused due to the surrounding mighty hills make this one of the best ever. The scenic view from the hills adds flavors to the main dish.

We need these fireworks back. We have a lot of expectations this year. Waiting for sanction from higher authorities.

7 Arakkal Pooram

I think Arakkal Pooram fireworks are the most beautiful and attractive in Kerala. I have seen many fireworks, but Arakkal Pooram fireworks are superb.

One of the best. Called as Thrissur Pooram in Malabar. Pooram has several events inside the temple as well as outside. Beautiful fireworks.

8 Kunissery Kummatti

It is the biggest Kummatti in Kerala, and more fireworks are being used.

9 Kannambra Vela

One of the oldest and most traditionally celebrated Vela.

It's an awesome experience with Kannambra Vela.

10 Ayalur Vela - Nemmara
The Contenders
11 Mangalam Vela

Last festival in Palakkad district and a good vibes feel around.
